    Forcing A2d to re-encode the audio fixes the problem, as well as manually cutting the audio ac3 by 168 ms in DelayCut and using that audio in A2D.
    This has always been the normal behavior of AVStoDSVD...

    A2D corrects audio delays through an AviSynth command. But if the source audio is already DVD compliant (and you have ticked "Keep compliant audio") then AviSynth is not used at all for audio. FFmpeg is used for demuxing audio directly from the source file instead, and there is no provision for correcting audio delay here.

    So you need to use some workaround, and you already found the right ones. Another possible workaround would be to tell A2D to create just elementary streams and then add the delay manually in the muxing or authoring stage.

    For a DVD structure you would use Muxman which lets you add a delay. For a muxed MPEG2 file you can tell Mplex to add a delay with the "--sync-offset" parameter (here you need to specify a negative value for a positive audio delay and vice versa).

    Thanks manolito wasn't sure if it was normal or not. Perhaps A2D should offer warning if the project has this scenario?

  3. What can AVStoDVD do that DVDStyler cannot? I thinking of migrating to DVDStyler altogether.

    AVStoDVD and DVDStyler are very similar in their purpose to create video DVDs from all kinds of sources. But they come from different standpoints, and this shows up to now...

    AVStoDVD always had the priority to offer high quality encoding. Earlier versions did not have any menu capabilities, these were added much later, and they still are somewhat limited. Conversion is based on AviSynth which makes it very powerful and versatile, but users who want to tweak things need to know the AviSynth syntax.

    DVDStyler started as a pure authoring application with the option to create menus using DVDAuthor. In the beginning it did not support any transcoding, users had to provide DVD compliant sources to feed them to the authoring routines. Later Mr Thuering (the author) decided that he wanted a more universal software, and he added transcoding capabilities using FFmpeg. But he supported only basic CBR transcoding, which resulted in bad quality except for very high bitrate encodes. The current DVDStyler versions incorporate a FFmpeg VBR plugin which I made out of frustration from the previous bad quality, so today DVDStyler can create very high quality DVD output.

    Which one you prefer is very much a matter of taste. I recommend to install both of them, you will soon see which one you prefer...

  5. OK. I'll try both for a while and decide. DVDStyler supports Avisynth too. Hopefully AVStoDVD will support chapters menu and thumbnails in the future.

    Edit: Welp, it looks like I'm sticking with AVStoDVD. DVDStyler doesn't accept AVS files. I have to use Avisynth Virtual File System and DVDStyler froze/stalled when loading the 124GB AVI file AVFS creates.

    Why do you need to feed AVS scripts to the conversion software?

    As you already found out DVDStyler will mostly crash when feeding an AVS script to it. And AVStoDVd (despite its name) is also not really good when you feed it with an AVS script...

    Since AVStoDVD uses AviSynth it is not too hard to incorporate your AVS script by adding it to the AviSynth tab in the "Edit Title" window. This is a much safer way compared to using an AVS script as the input.

  7. A2D works fine with basic/simple Avisynth scripts but DVDStyler won't accept any AVS files despite it stating that it supports Avisynth and AVS files. Did the author drop this feature?

    DVDStyler itself has no special code to support AVS scripts. It just uses FFmpeg's input capabilities, it is completely at the mercy of FFmpeg.

    Starting from FFmpeg version 3.12 the interaction of FFmpeg with AviSynth has changed. In many cases it helps to add the "AviSynth\Plugins" folder to your "Path" environment variable, and also adding any folder from where you may load AVS plugins to the Path variable is a good idea.

    //EDIT//
    BTW you did not make the bad mistake to try using a 64-bit version of DVDStyler with a 32-bit AviSynth version? This would never work...


    Good luck

    I installed the software this morning and had an error related to skins at the end of installation, when trying to launch the application for the first time. Software reported it would use default skins. What I have now is an application missing all of its distinct pictographic buttons, which are replaced with what appears to be "rainbow-colored film clips" (red-yellow-green-blue).

    Is the new version buggy? Is there any way to fix this?

    Warning! Problems found during Skin Icons loading! AVStoDVD will try to extract the ico files.

    Do you want to continue?

    and

    Warning! Errors found during Skin Icons loading!

    Default AVStoDVD icon will be used.

    See Help/FAQ/GUI/Q2.6 for more details.
    Manual extraction:

    Which folder, exactly? Default or Default\Icons? Classic or Classic\Icons?

    C:\Program Files (x86)\AVStoDVD\Skins\Default
    C:\Program Files (x86)\AVStoDVD\Skins\Classic
    And then Administrator rights are requested to extract or copy the folders. It's very frustrating.

    /// EDIT ///

    It would seem that we must copy the ICO files from the two Icons.ZIP archives into the Default and Classic folders directly—NOT into new "Icons" folders.

    As mentioned below, I have in fact changed my default font size in Windows 7.

    This happens with newer Windows versions (Win7 and above), mostly if the user has changed the default font size. But the workaround is easy.
    Code:
    See Help/FAQ/GUI/Q2.6 for more details.
    Have you even read the FAQ?
    Code:
    Workaround: manually unzip the icons.zip file you can find in the same folder
    Which folder? Default or classic skins?
    Of course the folder for the skins you are using. You set this under the "View->Skins" menu tab.

    And if you need administrator rights to extract or copy files to these folders, this is a Windows permissions issue, there is nothing AVStoDVD can do about it. I suggest you familiarize yourself with some basic Windows procedures (like doing things with elevated rights or start software as an administrator).

    And no, the new AVStoDVD version is NOT buggy, any user can easily fix these issues with very little effort...


    Cheers

    Of course. Reread the FAQ... Unzip the icon files into the same folder

    Green diagonal lines:

    Converting an MP4 video into DVD Folder Structure, I end up with green diagonal lines (slanting downward right to left at about 15°) dividing the picture—which I can still see, but not enjoy.

    In case it helps, I saw this message when opening the file:

    Warning! Input Title 'C:\Users\My user account\Video\My video.mp4' has a typical NTSC framerate (23.976 fps) Video stream.

    NTSC encoding will yield a better result.

    Do you want to change DVD Standard from PAL to NTSC for this Project (If you do not know, press 'No')?[/n]
    I've encountered problems with other converters when opening this same file. VLC will play this file without issue, although VLC cannot convert it, either.

    In such cases it is necessary that you post your AVStoDVD log file here. If you could cut out a short section of the source file (AviDemux works well for MP4) and attach it here then this will help us even more...

    In any case I hope that you have replaced the default MicroSoft DirectShow source filters with LAV... See this post:

    I switched all filters to LAV, and this corrected the green lines. The MP4 was also converted faster than ever. I have to ask, why are the LAV filters not used by default?

    Regardless, when DVD Shrink attempted to create the disc image I needed from the resultant DVD file structure, I encountered an error I've never seen before:

    DVD Shirnk encountered an error and cannot continue.

    Out of memory

    Not enough storage is available to process this command.
    I'm trying again, hoping AVStoDVD will allow me to bypass the use of DVD Shrink. We shall see.

    Until yesterday, I had been using DVD Flick, DVD Rebuilder, DVD Shrink, and ImgBurn to migrate an assortment of video files to DVD.

    \\\ EDIT \\\

    I was hoping to get an ISO I could later burn, but was surprised to discover AVStoDVD launched ImgBurn. All I had to do was point to the proper DVD writer. I've not been this impressed by software in many years.

    I imagine AVStoDVD creates an ISO at some point. Where is it? I'd like to burn more than one copy of these videos. I see Delete temporary DVD assets files is checked—in case that results in automatically deleting disc image files.

    AFAIK the A2D installer version comes with LAVFilters. I always use the non-install version, but in any case upon the first start A2D should give the users a warning if LAV Filters are either not installed or not used. Didn't you get such a warning?

    Some users still prefer ffdshow over LAV Filters, and A2D also supports this just fine. It's just the Microsoft filters which are evil...

    If you just want to create a disk image (without any additional shrinking) then of course you can bypass DVDShrink. The "Output" button at the top lets you choose between all kinds of output options. You can select an ISO image, and if IMGBurn is installed, A2D will recognize it and let you burn directly after a conversion.


    Cheers
    manolito


    //EDIT//
    Okay, posting both at the same time...

    Like I said, have a look at the output options. IMGBurn should only pop up directly after you have specified it.

    IIRC when you specify "Burn" then the image will not be deleted automatically (I could be wrong though). Where this image is depends n your settings for the A2D Paths. You can edit the paths under "Preferences", and at least for me things are easier to find if your temp and work and assets folders are different from the Windows user folders. But this is a matter of personal taste...


    And you are absolutely right, AVStoDVD is a software which does impress a lot of users. It has been around for over 10 years now, and MrC has constantly worked to improve it. At first glance it sometimes looks simple, but this is not true. Once you get familiar with it you will notice how powerful it is.

    Did a quick conversion to refresh my memory...
    When "Burn" is specified under the output options then A2D does not create an ISO image file at all. It creates a DVD structure instead (a VIDEO_TS folder), and this DVD structure is used by IMGBurn.

    After burning is complete, the VIDEO_TS folder will not be deleted. You can burn it again later with IMGBurn or any other decent burning software. In IMGBurn you need to specify "Build" in the "Mode" menu (instead of "Write").

    I've not the A/V experience of other users; I imagine the software will impress and leave me dumbfounded for many years to come.

    Another hiccup: The first MP4 I put to DVD played well enough, but for an occasional slight pause. The second MP4, which I output as an ISO instead of DVD, will not play on my set top box. I get a region restriction notice. The MP4 plays fine on my computer. Why would the DVD not be region free by default?

    More importantly, how do I address this?

    This is a first for me...

    AVStoDVD NEVER EVER adds a region code to the DVDs it creates. Maybe your set top box has problems playing ISO files directly. Try to create a DVD structure (a VIDEO_TS folder) and play this on your set top box.

    Or if you can live without menus repack the DVD into an MKV container using MakeMKV. This will retain your chapters, and most set top boxes have no problems playing MKVs.

    Good luck

    "Playback prohibited by area limitations." That is the message via my Sony set top box.

    I ripped the disc back to computer with a program that would remove any region settings, but that did not help; a second disc would not play, either. An MP4 isn't going to have any sort of region limitations, right? VLC plays the MP4. I can try creating a DVD folder structure, burning directly to DVD, or perhaps looking for another MP4. We shall see.

    Did you create a PAL disk instead of NTSC (or vice versa) ? My old Sony DVD player used to put this message out if it was wrong.
    That's why it's important to see the log, all the Info is there

    I thought that was supposed to appear in a smaller window one could scroll through.

    Anyway, I went into Perferences\Video and selected NTSC. It was set to PAL, obviously. Let's see what happens.

    If you're in NTSC-land (USA, etc) it should definitely be set this way. AS you can see from the log, it created a PAL disk.

    I suppose I should get a player that is region-free and PAL/NTSC capable.

    The first MP4 I converted to DVD had brief, random pauses affecting video and audio simultaneously. Playback was never interruption-fee for more than ten minutes. Could this be related to VBR encoding of many MP4s?

    Is this on your standalone player? What about if you play it on the PC ?

    The PC does not have the same problems.

    If the disk plays fine in the PC but not in your standalone player, I would suspect the standalone player
    is having an issue with the particular media you are using, resulting in unreliable reading of the data.

    This is a tool you can run on the PC that gives a indication of the burn "quality"

    The burners operate satisfactorily. The "area restriction" problem step from AVStoDVD defaulting to PAL; I fixed that in AVStoDVD Preferences.

    If the pausing and hitching occurred on every disc I made, or even with most of them, I would image the burner was suspect. However, the opposite is true. I have no trouble with most videos I burn. However, MP4s, converted with DVD Flick or AVStoDVD frequently exhibit pausing and hitching.

    There is an opportunity for me to learn more about conversion, but I certainly need help. I did not go to school for this. It is not my full time job. I am a novice.
